Upcoming events on racial literacy and mental illness discussed on Eye on Oshkosh

On the most recent episode of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz spends the first segment chatting with photographer Colleen Bries and Paine Art Center & Gardens executive director Aaron Sherer about the upcoming traveling exhibit entitled "The Color-Brave Photo Project: Black and Brown Faces, a New Narrative." You'll learn why this exhibit is so important and where you can see it, starting on April 20.

In the second segment, Cheryl is joined by Kimberly Osman, a board member for NAMI-Oshkosh. They discuss mental illness in general, how NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) can help folks who feel they are facing issues in their lives that they may need some professional help dealing with, and the various programs they offer for people who feel they need help themselves because of depression, anxiety, etc., or for folks who have had their lives impacted by someone who has committed suicide, or is dealing with mental health issues. Also, NAMI has a 5K Run/Walk coming up on Saturday, May 5 and Osman gave all the particulars about how to enter, as well as other informational booths being offered as part of the event to bring more awareness to mental health issues and how NAMI can help.
